Head coach Steve Spagnuolo gave updates on a slew of Rams injuries suffered in their Week Two loss to the Raiders.

TE Billy Bajema has an MCL injury and will miss 2-4 weeks. TE Daniel Fells also ahs an MCL injury, but is day-to-day.

S Craig Dahl has a concussion and will go through tests this week but his status is up in the air. S James Butler would start in his place.

DT Darell Scott has a high ankle sprain and will miss extended time.

The way we see it

QB Sam Bradford likes to throw to his tight ends, and the position is very banged up with rookie Michael Hoomanawanui already out for up to eight weeks. Fells should be able to go, but their only TEs left are journeyman Darcy Johnson and rookie Fendi Onobun. In the secondary, James Butler is normally the starter so there is not a huge drop-off if Dahl is not able to go. The Rams have a solid safety coprs. They are thin at the DT spot with Clifton Ryan missing the Week Two game and high ankle sprains can keep linemen out for a long time.
